In Church - Poem by Anon writer

He announced with a sneer
'Now listen here, all you sinners that can hear me-
Explain to me how
you'll plead when making
pornograph movies;
plastic boobies, swear words... nasty things
when the lord calls upon you
offering the forgiveness he often brings? '
'He'll send you to hell! '
'He'll punish you well! '
'You don't stand a chance, what you're doing! '
The crowd raved and screamed
Faith high esteemed
until a young man in the back
laughed.

    Nicely put together. I like the rhyme that runs through the poem. You say you haven't written much poetry before... well, good start. Keep going.
    All the best, Seán

    fine dialogue
    with a clear narrative
    plus a great ending
    keep up the good work
